Khushi sat on her bed with her knees folded and kept the book on her lap. She opened the book on the page where her book mark was and started reading from where she had left it. Suddenly there was a bang on her door.
Garima: Shashi, leave Khushi!
Shashi: No I won't. She too has the right to know what a double faced woman her mother is.
Khushi couldn't control her tears anymore. The room was filled with the smell of alcohol due to the shattering of the bottles on the ground. Moreover, her father was standing right next to her and he was way too drunk. As both of her parents again got busy with their 'no end to it' fight, Khushi found the perfect escape and ran outside the mansion into the front lawn.
There was a mix of emotions reflecting on her face which were of pain, anger, helplessness and being scared. Her brain had stopped working long time ago. She just wanted to erase all the memories of the last evening the same way as she had been doing all these years to find some peace. Her legs kept walking on their own wish as if they already knew where to go without any command from her already dead brain. She had already come out of the premises of the Gupta residence and was walking aimlessly on the road. It was raining heavily and she was drenched heat to toe. But she didn't care. Her head was spinning and there was severe headache that she was suffering from.
Khushi reached the nearby caf cum book store where she came almost every evening whenever she needed to get out to avoid becoming the focal point in her parents' 'discussion'.
Mrs. Lintonbon, the owner of the caf in city center, was in the process to close the caf when she saw Khushi standing across the road drenched in water.
Aunt Lintonbon: Oh! My dear'. Khushi? Is that you my child?
She asked adjusting her spectacles while trying her best to recognize Khushi. Khushi walked across the road to Aunt Lintonbon with her arms crossed across her chest in order to save the already wet book from getting wet.
Khushi: I am so sorry Aunty. I forgot to get an umbrella along with me in hurry. And I couldn't save the love story from getting wet in the rain.
Aunt L: Oh no my dear! The book is not a problem. All the books in her are yours. You can whatever you like with them. Especially with the ones which are in the love stories section.
Aunt L winked saying this trying to cheer up Khushi.
Khushi smiled between her tears hearing this. Khushi, since the age of 16 (i.e. for the past 8 years; she is 24 now) had been coming to the Aunt Lintonbon's cafe almost every day. This was her hideout where she would come to get peace and get away from the ugly truth of her life. She everyday would just go and sit in one corner of her favorite section of love stories and enter the world of fiction, dreams and fantasies.
But today was different; because of the weather she was having unbearable pain in her head.
Khushi: Aunty? Can I please go and rest for some time in some corner?
Aunt L: Sure Love' why don't you take a quick nap on your favorite corner sofa and I'll get you a cup of hot steaming coffee?
Khushi: Thank you Aunty. She said so and moved towards the Love stories section.
Next: Khushi's Accident
